Figuring out what I want to do with the rest of my life!

I've been lost for a LONG time..... It's taken me a while to get back here for a few reasons. 1st, I couldn't sign in because I can no longer access the email address that I used for this blog a LONG time ago and I finally fixed that problem. Honestly, I just didn't take a whole lot of time until now to try to figure that out. 2nd, LIFE happened! I'm not good at sticking with a lot of things. I love change. Now that makes me think that I love routine too. Maybe I'm just not sure what I love. :) Anyway, here I am. I'm not promising that I will be here often, because I don't like to make a promise to myself or anyone else that I don't feel confident that I will keep. The computer is not something I like to sit at for too long. I would rather get something else done. I don't sit still for very long. This is also the reason I don't watch TV. I would rather go outside for a run, walk, or bike ride. I will try to come back again to play catch up on what all has taken place in LIFE since my last post, but for now.....I need help!!! Anyway, I have a dilema and I thought if I write about it, then maybe I will find an answer or feel better. I have been on a journey to complete my elementary education degree, or at least getting back to the journey that I started MANY years ago. I restarted this journey about 2yrs ago. I finally completed my Associated Degree from BCCC in May. I have been trying all summer to get enrolled in classes at FHSU online to complete the rest of my degree. Needless to say, it has NOT been easy. I've been jumping through hoops and it's down to the wire. Classes start on Monday and I'm still not enrolled in any classes. There are a list of reasons why. It's not that I haven't been trying! So.....with all the problems that I've had, I started to question if this is really what I am supposed to be doing. Maybe there's a reason it has been so difficult. Maybe I'm on the wrong path! Maybe it's just hard and I'm making this into way more than I should. I don't know!!!! So, I stated wondering what else I might want to do if I decided NOT to do elementary education. I started thinking about things I love and are passionate about. The 1st thing I thought of was health. Being healthy is very important to me. Not just exercise, but eating healthy as well. Maybe I should pursue a degree that might include something about health. My next thought was that I really do LOVE spending time in the school and helping kids and making a difference...teaching. can I include both? PE teacher??? Maybe??? I have never even given that a thought until a couple days ago. My problem with this new epiphany is that an elementary education degree doesn't require the same classes as a PE degree and same for a PE degree. I AM DOWN TO THE WIRE! I have to today if I'm going to continue on the elementary education path and if I decide to pursue a PE degree....I will probably have to forgo this semester all together and enroll for that next semester. WHAT DO I DO??????
